the xx - Islands

Snark Alert:  With apologies to Beach House, the xx might be the most over-hyped thing in creation since the rhythm method.  Not to say they don't make quality shit...but damn.  They're a bit too cool on the indie-webs these days.  Why?  Because that whole sphere of music has been unbelievably dull for the last year and a half, and anything marginally good gets praise/press out the ass.  Don't believe me?!  How many albums made after 2008 are getting heavy rotation status on your iPod right now?

Told ya.

ANYWAY...blogger douche-baggery aside.  I really do love this song.  It would hold up in any time period.
